Fox News Washington-based correspondent Griff Jenkins found himself right in the middle of violent protests that broke out Friday six blocks from the parade route in downtown D.C. following the inauguration of President Donald Trump.

As Jenkins was reporting, police in riot gear carrying shields charged down the street, as seen in the above video at about the 1:20 mark.

D.C. Police reported that nearly 100 people have been arrested in connection to violent protests. At least two police officers have been injured.

D.C. Interim Police Chief Peter Newsham said protesters have caused "significant damage to a number of blocks in our city."

Jenkins reported that the streets hadn't been too busy all day until a crowd of about 200-300 people began throwing rocks and defacing property after the conclusion of the inaugural address. He later reported that the group was likely made up of 500-1,000 protesters.

Police have thrown pressure grenades in an attempt to disperse the crowd. Tear gas was also used, though it is unclear if it was deployed by the police or the protesters.

Jenkins said the protesters were part of an anti-fascist bloc known as DisruptJ20.
